 abstract = {"In this paper I will focus on the psychological dynamics of multiparty
collaboration, illustrated by two projects in which I have been engaged.
First I describe what I mean by multiparty collaboration. Next, I outline
the principles of designing and executing action research projects. The
theoretical background for these principles is derived from the domain of
Organization Development and from a psychodynamic perspective on
organizations and organizational change. Subsequently I present my
experiences with running a complex behavioral simulation of multiparty
processes. I share some main observations pertaining to the social
difficulties people encounter when working across system boundaries. The
second project concerns an action research project of an organizational
change process in a nursing home. I describe the action research process
and my role as a consultant. I then review some generic issues related to
multiparty processes that are typical for both projects. I end with some
reflections on universities and multiparty collaboration." (author's abstract)},
